With the show just a few weeks away, the 58th ACM Awards are rolling out the list of performers.

Set to be livestreamed live at The Star in Frisco, Texas exclusively on Prime Video on May 11th at 8:00 PM EDT, the show will be will co-hosted for the first time by Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks.

Morgan Wallen is up for his first Entertainer of the Year Award, and Hardy and Lainey Wilson lead the pack with seven and six nominations, respectively. Zach Bryan is also up for his first-ever ACM Award in the New Male Artist of the Year category.

You can check out the entire list of nominees HERE.

And today, they announced the first round of performers, which includes reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Miranda Lambert, as well as Luke Combs, Cody Johnson, Jo Dee Messina, Ashley McBryde, Dolly Parton, Jelly Roll, Cole Swindell, Keith Urban, Morgan Wallen, The War And Treaty, Lainey Wilson, Bailey Zimmerman, Jason Aldean and Kane Brown.

Save for a few artists on that list, it’s probably already the best lineup we’ve seen in many years, and there should be a few more great artists added before it’s all said and done.

But possibly most exciting will be the closing performance by Mrs. Dolly, where she will premiere lead single from her forthcoming rock album, Rock Star, “World On Fire.”

Additional performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
